OLD DELHI MARKETS, INDIA (Part 2)

The Old Delhi markets are a real mix. Inside a city block you can find everything; spices, food, textiles, with a little bit of everything in between.

When it comes to colors and textiles, the Indian culture is all about color.

The Indian culture also loves their marigolds. Street vendors were selling them everywhere – especially near temples.

Did I mention that watching the street vendors and not being able to try any of the foods was torture?

This fellow was making these amazing deep fried, cinnamon, crispy sweet cakes. How do I know? They had them in the hotel at breakfast – a place where we could eat the food.

The Indian spice markets are like the textiles – filled with colors. I had one vendor try to sell me a huge bag of cardamom for a couple dollars – definitely not Tokyo prices.

A wonderful “wander”.

AFTERNOON JAZZ IN SAN FRANCISCO

I arrived early on a Sunday a few months back and went for a walk. Ended up in a little café where I had a sandwich and listened to some Jazz. I think I would enjoy living in San Francisco.

It wasn’t the best sandwich, but the ambiance made up for it.
